Style Notes

Contemporary design. This villa was built entirely of Bormes dry stone and designed to fit neatly into the landscape. Set on 1000 sq m of tree-lined grounds, it has terraces opening to sea views and bay windows to make the most of the panorama. Furniture includes wicker furniture set in the living room with sliding doors to the terrace for indoor-outdoor relaxing, tiled flooring and painted wooden furniture. We love the Mediterranean views, the cozy and comfortable living space and the location so close to beaches and pretty villages.
